No one wants to work on christmas eve because they got sick earlier in the year.
Yup, I'll be back at work on December 26th.
Sad that most of Slashdot is against it because of the colour of their ties.

What amazes me is the things which weren't predicted.
Look to the authors to find better predictions. Greg Bear predicted the future of the internet and media fairly well in Queen of Angels in 1990, and William Gibson actually invented the term "Cyberspace" (not to mention the entire cyberpunk genre) in 1984 with his novel Neuromancer.
